To each their own stiff... IMHO if you can make it look like it came that way and not backyardish then I'm sure it'll look hella sick😝😎

I dislike the blacked out look, Titanium should not be covered up.

Sorry to say, I can not refinish the system for you now as you PM messaged me about as you have had it coated now.

Stiffler, how about trying a different black? One that more closely matches the race black color on the front fairing. To me, the black you have looks like bbq paint. It's so flat it doesn't look right. imo.

Sorry I should have explained more to everyone about the paint etc..

the pictures im showing is just to show the Tit and the black difference. I like the Tit look but for one it doesnt match anything on the bike and it was rubbed and scratched so it looked terrible. unless I sent it to DHC for a make over I had to do something.

The black that I painted it with is NOT the finished product. It was just a quick spray to see. I can actually rub it off of there without harm to the tit if I want. I just wanted to see what it looked like.

I do how ever like the black so I will be getting a different color black (satin not flat) and like said above I will try my best to match it to the black decals on the front and back of the machine. and I will leave the mid pipes flat like it is now.

I do agree with everyone, right now it looks like BBQ paint. of course it does look better in person than pics but this is just temporary until I get the other paint and properly bake it on...

Ill show pics when it is the finished product..

thanks all

Stiff

PS if I have to I will take it in and get it properly powder coated...guy said he can do it for $50
